On October 29, 2013, Sam Heughan was announced as Patron of Youth Theatre Arts Scotland.
“Going to a youth theatre was a crucial first step at the start of my career. It was a safe, welcoming environment where I met like-minded students and inspiring leaders. It introduced me to the skills needed (which I still use today) and I worked alongside professionals. Youth theatre organisations are a fundamental part of helping young people become successful in the acting industry.” *
To support Sam and his endeavors, we began fundraising for YTAS through a special justgiving.com page and we called it: Heughligans Youth Theatre.
